If I had a Dinosaur by Gabby Dawnay and Alex Burrow

Book review by @littlefolktales

If I had a dinosaur by Gabby Dawnay and Alex Barrow

A little girl dreams of having a pet, but none of the popular ones like dogs, or cats, or mice or hamsters seem quite right for her. But what if she could have her very own pet dinosaur?!

From fitting a dinosaur flap, to taking it to school to learn the alphabet, to the food it will need…there seems to be only one downside, and this is the bit your Littlefolk will probably love the most…as you turn the page to reveal the giant dinosaur pooh!

This is a glorious celebration of childhood imagination and creativity, as the little girls dinosaur toy becomes her pet.  The rhyming text is fun and humorous which makes it a lovely bed time read, and it is refreshing to see a girl at the centre of a story about dinosaurs

The illustrations by Barrow are simple and diverse in their representation of race and culture.  The big green dinosaur is a striking and memorable image throughout the book, and is sure to stick in the minds of LittleFolk as they drift off to sleep to dream about having their own dinosaur.

Sure to be a firm favourite with dinosaur lovers, and of course those obsessed with pooh!  

We recommend it for Littlefolk aged 2-5.
